WARNING: Please read the instructions carefully before using Health Bridges and please do not deviate in any way from these instructions. People who use Health Bridges, or allow others to use them, do so at their own risk. As with any orthopedic device, we strongly advise consultation with a health care professional, before using Health Bridges, especially in cases of prior injury or illness. This will ensure that you proceed properly through the "Three Steps to Better Back Health", and derive maximum benefit from Health Bridges.
Health Bridges can help 80% of the population that suffer from back pain. A revolutionary three step process that will alleviate back stress and lower back pain and contribute to back health.
The unique curved design of Health Bridges rotates and lifts the shoulders, and stretches back muscles and ligaments. A slot up the middle of the bridges accommodates the spinal column and eliminates pressure on this area, distributing body weight evenly across the muscles of the back and providing beneficial pressure against critical areas along the spinal column.
The overall result is improved posture and flexibility. This can help to enhance confidence and self-esteem.
IMPORTANT: Always start with Bridge #1, even if you do not have lower back pain or other problems or your body is already reasonably flexible.
Health Bridges introduce a new physical alignment to your body's systems of nerve, muscle and bone, and it is important that you ease into this new position gradually to give your body time to adjust. Bridge #1 is the bridge with the least curvature. To use the Bridge #1, place it curved side up on the floor ( preferably on a non slip surface ). Then sit on the floor with your back to the bridge, buttocks touching the bridge where the centre slot is lowest, lower yourself carefully back over the bridge, making sure the spinal column falls into the centre slot. Unless you feel considerable discomfort, hold this position for 10 minutes. To get up after using the bridge, simply roll to the left or right and lay on your stomach for a minute, then get up on your knees and stand up.
Use Bridge #1, as previously described, twice a day; 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night.
|That's all there is to it!
Generally, after three to four weeks of use, you may begin to feel and see noticeable results. Progress is measured by the ability to arch with ease; that is, to slip back into the Health Bridges position fluidly and without discomfort. When you are able to arch with ease, it may be time to move on to Bridge #2. But don't rush it: don't move to Bridge #2 until you are totally comfortable using Bridge #1. To do otherwise, or go too far too fast, will compromise the desired effects. Health Bridges will be even more effective if you focus on the maintenance of good posture throughout the day.
Bridge #2 further improves the range of movements and benefits achieved through Bridge #1. Use it exactly the same way; at the same time of day, for the same amount of time. When you can arch with ease on the second bridge you may be ready for Bridge #3. NOTE: Some people may not wish to, or be able to, proceed to Bridge #3. If in doubt, check with a Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, Medical Doctor or other Health Care Professional.
Use Bridge #3 in exactly the same way you use Bridges #1 and #2. This last step will continue to enhance any benefits you may have realized thus far. Furthermore, the dynamics of the increased curvature of Bridge #3 will cause a traction or lift of the lumbar spine and a reduction of pressure on lumbar discs.
Bridge #3 will help in sustaining, over the long term, the positive changes achieved through use of the previous two bridges.
NOTE: If you do not use the Bridge for a few days you may find that you have to go back to the previous level for a session to get your flexibility back. Keep all levels of Bridges handy for this reason.
